PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: XP
Problem Application Name & Version: System32\DRIVERS\pci.sys
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages: Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: System32\DRIVERS\pci.sys  You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original Setup CD-ROM. Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair

    I could just use some much needed assistance going about doing this.

Now once I input my XP CD, it attempts to run but displays the message, "File setupdd.sys could not be loaded. The error code is 4
          Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit."
And I once again get stuck in a loop of this and the "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: System32\DRIVERS\pci.sys"

Are you sure your harddrive is connecting from your motherboard's IDE connectors, not from an IDE controller card that's stuck in a PCI slot?

Please leave some more system specs. If PCI.sys is damaged or not available, none of your PCI cards can start, you can get trouble with your memory, your AGP card will most probably be giving you artifacts etc.

Please try the following:

Press Start
Press Run
Type in sfc /scannow and hit Enter
Have your Windows XP CD ready as it will ask for it. If you do not have a Windows XP CD, but a recovery CD, don't attempt this.

In that case either bring your PC to a friend who knows a little more of things than you do, or bring it to a PC repair shop.
